So what would you do?
My son is 5 years old and is in a pre-k program. This week he was the star student so he was asked to put together a poster board with pictures of what he likes to do. Basically take a snap shot of his hobbies and put them on the poster board. He took it in to school Monday. It was hung up outside the classroom door for all to see. The problem comes in when several parents complained because one of the pictures was of him hunting with me, he had his orange vest on holding his 410 pump shotgun. So since they complained they cornered my wife when she was picking up my son on Wed and made her and my son color over the gun with a marker. To say the least I am extremely upset and can not believe that they would make my son feel like he had something wrong on his board. I am raising my son to appreciate the outdoors and our country. There is no school policy that is written or that has been verbally expressed about this and they told my wife that they would be adopting a new school policy so that this issue would not arise again.
So to I am sitting here trying to determine what I should do.. To think the very place that is suppose to be partnering with me is tearing apart the values that I am trying to build in him. The other issue is my wife loves the school and thinks that I am crazy.
What would you do? Am I over reacting ?
